Verse 1

Why did you go?

Why did you leave me here?

I feel so lonely,

Without you being near.

You promised you would always,

Help me get through life.

But now you're gone,

My world is full of strife.

Chorus

A million words would not bring you back,

I know because I tried.

Neither would a million tears,

I know because I cried.

I can't take this anymore,

So let me fly away.

Stop the world I wanna get off,

And get away from the sorrow of today.

Verse 2

You said that there were only lessons in life,

So I can't make mistakes.

But you were wrong; I made a mistake,

To let you go that day.

I can't come to terms with your death,

It just does not make sense.

You would always help me decide,

When I was sitting on the fence.

Chorus

A million words would not bring you back,

I know because I tried.

Neither would a million tears,

I know because I cried.

I can't take this anymore,

So let me fly away.

Stop the world I wanna get off,

And get away from the sorrow of today.

Bridge

You always said that you weren't afraid of death,

It was a reasonable thing to say.

But you didn't consider the ones you'd leave behind,

When you meet your ending day.

But I know that you are,

Watching me from heaven,

Keeping me safe from danger.

You are still with me, even when I am alone,

To help get me through the day.

Chorus

A million words would not bring you back,

I know because I tried.

Neither would a million tears,

I know because I cried.

I can't take this anymore,

So let me fly away.

Stop the world I wanna get off,

And get away from the sorrow of today.

Outro

Your time has come,

So now you're gone,

To a better place,

Far beyond.

I live on but you have left me,

But it's okay,

Because you're free.
